About debug

Provides an overview of debug and describes the debug components.

The processor forms one component of a debug system. You can use the following invasive debug methods:

Conventional JTAG debug (external debug)
The processor halts execution when breakpoints and watchpoints are triggered. A debug connection enables you to examine and modify registers and memory, and provide single-step execution.
Conventional monitor debug (self-hosted debug)
The processor runs a debug monitor that resides in memory.

The following figure shows a typical JTAG debug system.
